The Foo Fighters, who re-opened Madison Square Garden earlier this year and have played concerts from Lollapalooza to Alaska, have announced a special homecoming show at Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club on Thursday night (Sept. 9) — a serious underplay, since the club holds just 1,200 people. Tickets are on sale now if they’re not already gone.
The legendary 9:30 Club — which has hosted shows by Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, Al Green, Willie Nelson, James Brown, Billie Eilish, Adele, Justin Timberlake, Green Day and countless others over its 41-year history — has been shuttered for 18 months and is reopening in style, with the return of D.C.-area native Dave Grohl’s band.
Limit two per person. Tickets are non-transferable and must be picked up at Will Call tomorrow night.
Everyone entering the building must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated for Covid-19 or provide a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours. Everyone must stay masked unless they are actively eating or drinking.
It’s a rare opportunity to see one of the world’s biggest bands in a small club: the remainder of their 2021 tour dates gives an indication of the size of the venues they normally play.
